attack in libya. senior u.s. terrorism officials felt out of the loop. they never gave a stand down order all of this while the very men chosen to protect the u.s. ambassador could not be trusted. peter doocy has the latest on that from dc. >> let's start with the 2012 presidential election. it is four-days away from now. it is back to business as both of the candidates are taking big swings at one another and awaits the latest jobs numbers who will come out this morning. >> what is a number going to be? just a quick refresher it is 7.8 percent. we can probably replace that 8 today with a 9. the number is actually going to go up a little bit, but whatever numbers we see today, both of these guys are going to be bracing for them to try to craft their messages around them. a lot will depend on how many
2:32am
jobs were created last month but we have a number of factors including the size of the labor force how many people gave up looking for work how many people decided to start looking for work and economists are going to very carefully take these numbers apart. it is all a confidence game when people go to the poll on tuesday. they are going to ask themselves do i feel good about the future? do i feel like barack obama is right moving forward or is mitt romney right they are not moving forward we are moving in the right direction. >> in colorado that's a state that did pretty well four years ago. the unemployment rate is worse there than it is across the nation. he was making the case last night for a strong government role. today there are thousands of workers building long lasting batteries and solar technology and wind turbines all across the country. jobs that weren't there four years ago. >> one of the new ideas the president is giving is creating
2:33am
a secretary of business that was something that mitt romney ridiculed yesterday as he made an appearance in virginia. >> you see, i don't think that what we need is another government bureaucrat that supposedly knows something about job creation. i think it would be helpful to have a president who actually understands job creation. >> we will find out what those job numbers are in about three hours. if they are right and we are talking in the neighborhood of 21,000 jobs created last month that is a little better than last month but below the average monthly job creation number we have been seeing through the course of the year. back to you guys. doug luzader thank you so much. on to another story now a very important one. this is a question a lot of folks are asking now. one of the guards who was assigned to protect americans in benghazi affiliated with terrorists? a letter was found at the scene that implies that that was exactly the case. peter doocy joins us live in washington with the latest on
2:34am
that. good morning, peter. this is pretty explosive stuff. >> it is. hours before the american consulate in benghazi was attacked by terrorists one of the guards there saw a member of the libyan police force behaving in a suspicious way. they drafted a letter to the head of the libyan ministry of foreign affairs and part of it said this person was photographing the inside of the u.s. special mission and furthermore this person was sent to protect the mission. this letter was found by journalists on october 26th just a few days ago inside the compound along with ambassador stephens personal copy of the new yorker among other things. something else we found out in the last 24-hours that says the state department will not send the porn team with the bombings of the u.s. embassy in tanzania. it will allow the fbi much
2:35am
sooner from the 24 day days it will eventually take. nation nag security advisor tommy dieter says the most senior people in government worked on the issue the minute it happened that includes the secretary of defense chairman of the joint chief secretary of state national security advisor et cetera the deputies committee the second in command at the relevant national security agencies met at least once and more often twice a day to manage the issues. republican senator john mccain says when you add all of the evidence up the administration must have known all along this 9-11 attack was not spontaneous. >> this was a classic scandal where almost every day or every few days the shoe drops. i think it could be bad as watergate. one of the veterans said yes but nobody died in watergate. they have a point. >> jay carney said yesterday the president is anticipating the
2:36am
result of an fbi investigation. peter doocy, thank you so much. more on that through out the morning. the big story this morning people up and down the east coast surveying the damage left behind by hurricane sandy. the death toll right now stands at 90. it could go even hire. more than 4 million people remain in the dak. most of them in new york and new jersey. the loss of power forced gas stations to close because they either can't pump the gas or they have run out. panicked drivers are lining up for miles and miles just to see if they can fill their tanks. at one of the hardest hit places in new york is staten island. flood waters fill homes there while the strong winds rip others right off of their foundation. joining us live from there is anna kooiman with the latest this morning. good morning to you, heather. good morning to everybody at home. both are blocking the streets in the neighborhood.

2:38am

2:39am
recalibrate all machines. they have additional technicians. they are asking for that and to use signs and verbal reminders to make sure the ballots are correct. nevada secretary of state meantime says there is no evidence of this and calls the accusations irresponsible. >> we are learning new details about the new york city nanny accused of killing two little children in her care. according to the new york post y jocelyn or at theing ga telling cops was enraged as the the family asked they are to do housework to learn more money. she was unhappy about doing five extra hours each week. she woke up from a medically induced coma later this week she gave the statement. >> they turned away to helping the hurricane devastated state of new jersey because they are not union? workers from three companies say that their help was turned down by new jersey crews since they
2:40am
are not union employees. they are now going to help people on new york's long island. >> we will take them on long island. >> president obama's jobs council but he is still supporting mitt romney for president. the romney campaign announcing one of the latest backers is intel ceo paul otellini. records show otellini donated 55,000 to mitt romney's campaign. in the past he criticized president obama for not doing enough to create jobs and also for his stimulus plan. the president's jobs council hasn't met since january. country music biggest stars gathered in nashville last night for the 4th annual cma awards. they didn't forget the devastation brought on by sandy. >> tonight's show is dedicated to new york, new jersey. all of our prayers go out to the east coast. >> in case you were wondering about the winner of the show?
2:41am
blake shelton. took home three trophies including entertainer of the year. >> i know i am not out there that much i don't know how this happened. i freaking love it, though. >> shelton joined others in a tribute to will knee nelson. he achieved the lifetime achievement award. >> that is your 5@5:30. here's a look at who is talking this morning. we are hearing from clint eastwood. the actor made headlines for his criticism of president obama. >> that empty chair last night speaking with sean hannity he continued to express his disappointment with the president and explaining to hannity why he thinks mitt romney is the man for the job. >> a lot of people who feel dissatisfied from voting for him last time are afraid to admit they maybe made a mistake. it's better to be overly
2:42am
defensive and just say, well, i am voting for him again. i just tried to give people when i was at the rnc the idea that maybe they could -- they should think about other alternatives and rather than just voting a party line. of course a lot of people who are on the republican side voted for him last time will probably have regrets. if you have regrets think about somebody else. somebody who offers something else like a business background. governor romney has had a great business background. he's extremely well educated. he has several degrees from harvard. including business and including a law degree. he's just kind of a perfect guy for the job. and i think along with paul ryan you have a great team that's out there ready to go.
2:43am
i think they can correct a lot of the problems we have had. >> eastwood also saying last night there are a whole lot of conservatives in hollywood who do not speak out about politics because they are worried about not getting jobs. >> interesting. >> the time is 43 after the top of the hour. still ahead we are hours away from the final jobs report before the election. we are breaking down the expectations and what all of this could mean. we will have that ahead with robert gray from the fox business network. there is supposed to be fighting in hockey we all expect that. maybe the two teams didn't get a message it's not supposed to be fight club.

>> from tfox business network joins us with how things are looking. what does it sound like the report is going to say? >> doesn't look like the needle
2:47am
is going to move they like the trim line where things are going with the great recession with the president. unemployment now changed during his tenure now or time to switch and go with governor romney. that's what it is coming down to unless we get some kind of big surprise. adding 155 jobs each month to keep up to tread water. unemployment rate kicked up to 7.9 percent. a lot of controversy when it drops down to 7.8 percent. remember that is a different survey the jobs security is coming from payroll data and where as the unemployment rate is actually a phone survey of 60,000 people. a smaller survey there when you are looking at that. one of the key things to watch as far as the economy going is aying hour average hourly earni.
2:48am
not really keeping up with inflation right now. that is a problem with our consumer driven economy. >> robert gray the fox business network. those numb >> almost 10 minutes to the top of the hour. while we wait for the jobs number there is already bad news about october. layoffs in a record high. which industries were hit the hardest? that is up next. she was a multi millionaire and didn't know it. a lottery winner finally claims her ticket five months later. what took her so long? we will find out. peter doocy to see what's coming up on fox and friends. >> kicks off 12 minutes from now. geraldo rivera will be here. scott walker talking politics and frank luns is going to do the dials. the october unemployment numbers are going to be announced you

>> 8 minutes to the top of the hour. a soldier shot twice during the fort hood massacre has started on an 80 mile run to the texas state capital to mark the anniversary of the shooting. chris marshall is making the run so people don't forget the victims of that day. and people aren't the only victims of hurricane sandy. many animals were swept away or separated from their homes. those looking for their pets should check out animal control
2:53am
facilities and local animal shelters. there is also a facebook page called hurricane sandy lost and found pets. heather? >> more bad news for jobs. the number of planned layoffs have gone up 41 percent. that's a five month high. industries hit the hardest? let's talk to diane macedo from the fox business network. never a story we like to report. challenger gray and christmas say they plan to layoff 47,720 people. in october that is up 41 percent from september. up 12 percent from a year ago. one of the major businesses getting hit is the auto industry with ford alone announcing 11,000 layoffs. those will largely effect workers in europe not here in the u.s. but john challenger the out placement firm ceo shows that indicate how vulnerable u.s. is to the situation in europe.
2:54am
the consumer products industry also announced 5,000 cuts and electronic companies came in shy of 4500 with both sectors siting a slow down in business and consumer spending. on the outside if you look at the year so far we are down more than 88,000 compared to how many total layoffs had been announced by this point last year. the challenger says the last three months of the year tend to see the heavier layoff activity. the third quarter earning season does not bowed well for the things to come. the big indicator like robert was talking about on how the jobs market is doing comes in today and that is the government monthly jobs report. they will be watching this one closely and will have the numbers on fbn as they come across. >> we will be watching the numbers closer later today. the time is 6 minutes from the top of the hour. there is supposed to be fighting in hockey. they didn't get the message it's not exactly supposed to be fight
